Design & Construction Services

Whether you're adding an electric-vehicle charger or building your dream house or a sports arena, our Design & Construction Services team is here to help you connect to SMUD's electric system.

You'll find information about the connection process and electric service requirements. You'll also find links to SMUD's Project Application website, where you can submit an application to connect to our electrical system, track the status of an existing job and make payments.

Getting started

  • Get more information about the application and connection process for a new construction, upgrade or remodel project that will need more than a meter installation and connection of electric service.
  • If you need new service or an upgrade to existing service that won't require upgrades or additions to SMUD's existing infrastructure, review our meter and service only guidelines.  

Please Note: Each local agency has its own requirements for construction projects. We suggest that you discuss your project with the appropriate agency before submitting your project application to us. Click here for more information about local agency requirements.

Please choose your desired process and get a detailed description of each:

You can access the project application when you are ready to begin.

Please remember to call before you dig: Call 811, or visit www.Call811.com.
